Rush Limbaugh asked one question about the Supreme Court that will decide the election
The state of Texas is suing Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin over the manner in which they conducted their elections.
The case is heading directly to the Supreme Court.
And Rush Limbaugh asked one question about the Supreme Court that will decide the election.
Because the Texas case involves a dispute directly between the states, the Supreme Court has original jurisdiction over the matter, meaning that Texas does not have the go through the lower courts to get a hearing at the Supreme Court.
The Texas case raises serious constitutional issues.
One is that in Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court held that ballots all needed to be treated in the same manner under the equal protection clause.
That obviously is not the case here as each state set up separate procedures to count and manage ballots.
Texas also argued that these four states violated their own laws by changing to no-excuse absentee balloting through court orders and executive actions as opposed to the legislative process as laid out under state law.
The lawsuit claims that these states violated the rights of Texas – as well as the other 46 states and the District of Columbia – that followed state law and certified vote counts under the proper procedure.
But the Supreme Court does not have to take the case.
And Rush Limbaugh told his listeners that this was the best chance for the court – with its 6 to 3 Republican appointee majority – to show it was serious about taking on the fraud in the 2020 election.
“The court does not have to take the case. They’re not obligated to hear it. But, therefore, this will demonstrate how serious the court is. One state is suing a bunch of other states over the simple fact that its state legislatures who have exclusive power to change election law in the state. It’s not the governor. It’s not the secretary of state. It’s not any other state official. It is the state legislature. And if end runs took place around them, then the court, if they take the case, it’s a slam dunk, I would think,” Limbaugh explained.
The Trump campaign legal team says it will continue this fight right up until January.
But Limbaugh and many Trump supporters worry that if the Supreme Court does not take up this case, it won’t hear any challenges to the 2020 election.
